In my absence, I have noticed that I did not miss blogging. The constant feeling that I needed to crank out at least three posts a week was getting stressful without me even realizing it. Coming up with unique, relevant content is hard. In my hunting and fishing adventures I hold to one overriding rule: If it is not fun, don't do it. That is why I do not fish in a cold rain, or hunt in a mosquito infested swamp, it is not fun. Blogging was beginning to not be fun.
The second reason I have slowed down blogging is because I have come to realize the goal I set for myself in unattainable. Starting out, I had one goal: to make enough money to offset the cost of hunting. Over little less than a year I have clocked over 400 hours working on this blog. I have made a little less than $200 and spent a little over $300. I doubt I will ever make money. It seems that this is a trend for most outdoor bloggers. I simply cannot figure out how to monetize The Unlucky Hunter.

I'm not closing the blog. In fact, knowing me, I'll pick it back up full force in a few months. For now , I will just be taking it slower. When I do post, it will be good!
